Shai Hope led the West Indies to a remarkable five-wicket victory over England in the second Test on Tuesday as he became the first batsman to score two hundred in a first-class match at Headingley.
The West Indies, set 322 to win, finished on 322 for five with Hope making 118 not out — his second hundred of the match after his first-innings 147.
The Windies set a seemingly imposing 322 for victory, reached that target five down with 28 balls to spare.
Windies recorded their first Test win in England since 2000. Now the three-match series is set at 1-1. They suffered a humiliating inning and 209-run defeat inside three days in the first Test at Edgbaston.
Windies captain Jason Holder insisted he’d never lost faith in his players.“I always believe in this group, we’ve done some outstanding things. I sent a text in our team chat this morning, ‘just believe’. I urged no one to move from their seats, and it was nerve-wracking in the end. There’ve been some hard times, but we’ve felt the support here,” he said.
